Welcome to 5th Grade/ ELA and Social Studies
This is the last week of assignments!!! Great job parents and students! I know this has been a very challenging nine weeks, but we did it. I have listed this weeks assignments under the assignment tab, dojo, and google classroom. I highly suggest you check skyward and look at your child's grades. If they missed any assignments, they can make them up and submit them. If they have a low SS Weekly test grade, they can retake the test. If they failed an I-Ready assignment, they can retake it and I will change the grade. However, if they retake something, please send me a quick dojo note or email so I know to go in and update their grade.
Our final Zoom meeting is today at 2:00. I have asked the kids to wear Hawaiian or beach wear for fun.
The last day to submit assignments is May 28th.
Looking forward to see you on Wednesday for the drive thru celebration.
I am still available for questions. My office hours are:
Morning Office Hours: 9:30-10:30
Afternoon Hours: 1:00-2:00
If you need face to face help with issues just send me an email or parents can dojo and we will schedule a time to meet on Zoom. Or you can just post a message on Google classroom or email me.
If you are a gifted student. Please go to Mrs. Villella's website to see her instruction. Also, don't forget to check the websites for Mrs. Baines (art) Mr. Gulick (music) and Mr. Varnadore (P.E.)
Take care, Kelly Wilson

Please go to google classroom for your assignments each week. You will have 3 ELA assignments and 1 Social Studies Weekly assignment starting next week, April 6th.
I will enter 1 ELA grade and 1 SS grade each week.
Please ask your child to log on google classroom from their google apps on their student desktop to see each week's assignments. Go to www.desktop.marion.k12.fl.us
Then, your child will sign in to their desktop with their username and password that they have used all year to get into I-Ready. This will take them to all of their apps. Google classroom is located in google apps( look at bottom of screen) I-Ready should already be on the screen. SS weekly is located in E Textbooks. We use outlook email which is in the app for Office 365.
Greetings families and students,
I will still use Class Dojo for personal messages. However, if your child has a question they can email me or ask me on google classroom. Assignments will be posted on google classroom each Monday.
